This title starts with an introduction that puts Wellington's walking attractions in context - from the vibrancy of the central city to the quiet of a forest-filled valley. The author's knowledge of ongoing conservation efforts in the region give an added interest to the 23 recreational walks described. Each walk offers clear directions, plus details of relevant public transport, refreshment stops and other attractions along the way. Also included is a history of both Maori and European settlement of the area, and some of the flora and fauna to be found en route. The walks covered include historic city tours, wildlife sanctuaries, coastal wildernesses and some of Wellington's lesser-known scenic attractions.
